Phoenix Sports Club are tackling Malta’s ever increasing obesity problem by offering free handball training to children during their summer holidays.
Boys and girls interested in trying out a new sport should take advantage of this exciting opportunity to make new friends, stay active and be part of a team.
“Handball is a very dynamic and fast paced sport, and one which has recently gained a lot of popularity in Malta. Through our free summer coaching scheme we aim to encourage parents to perceive sport as a discipline that complements their child’s learning and remain active. Our wish is to keep engaging people to take up sports and one day saying goodbye to our sedentary lifestyle,” said Swieqi Phoenix Sports Club President & Founder Orlando Bonnici.
Handball is the second most popular game in Europe and has been played in Malta for the past twenty years. It is an Olympic team sport in which two teams consisting of a goalkeeper and six outfield players pass a ball using their hands, with the aim of throwing it into the goal of the other team. A standard match consists of two periods of 30 minutes, and the team that scores more goals wins.
Professional handball coaching will be given for free to all boys and girls aged between 10 and 14 starting July 1. Boys’ training sessions will take place in Rabat and girls’ sessions will be held in Mosta, 2 times a week.
Those interested are encouraged to contact Mr Orlando Bonnici on 79449359 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 25, 2015. Alternatively, you could interact on Facebook: www.facebook.com/
